Final project of term one is submitted

Term one is finally over. Iโ€™m eagerly awaiting my marks and feedback from my professors. This program was โ€˜restructuredโ€™ from previous years and it showed. There were certainly some bumps with deadlines and content as the term unfolded. I think the load wasnโ€™t well-balanced course to course. With a massive amount of content dropping in the programming course. I have learned a ton and look forward to next term. Iโ€™ll repost once I get my marks.

Yesterday we visited Aurora (sadly the SiL was sick) to see a movie with the nephews. The film of choice was The Grinch. Iโ€™m a little surprised by so many harsh reviewsโ€ฆ with both audience and critics having the film under 60%. I thought it was fun. I also think it is silly to expect academy award plots and dialogue from what is clearly a childrenโ€™s movie.

After the movie, we wandered around Upper Canada Mall for a while. Bot was on an info gathering mission about sports watches which was mostly a failure. Every store that had the watches she wanted were locked under glass, could not be tried on and could not be taken out of the boxโ€ฆ Sooooooooโ€ฆ??? How are you going to evaluate fit and weight on your wrist? A sports watch is generally quite bigger than a typical watch. Silly stuff. We had pizza in the new Market area in the mall. It was a bit pricey but a better offering than the food court.

Iโ€™ve been pulling a lot of late nights for the past weekโ€ฆ looking forward to some downtime. It looks like it will be a green Christmas. Hmpt.
